Cannot assign Admin rights RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all

    I am the admin on our Project Server online instance and up until recently could assign ay rights I needed to to particular users.

    However for the past 2 weeks, I have had to try and assign admin rights to a new admin bod and the option is greyed out in the manage users option.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

  • Hi Sean,

    If I understand well, you go to server settings, manage users, select the user, but then you cannot add the admin group from the available groups to the user's group?

    The admin group is automatically syncronized so you cannot manually add user to this group:

    You have to go to the O365 admininstration page, edit the user and add it to the admin group.


    Hope this helps,

  • Here is how to access the admin page:

    And how to add the user to the admin group (select the appropriate level of admin, maybe not global admin):
